Fresh from a set at the massive Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, the Boston and Brooklyn-based “Gypsy Funk” orchestra Evolfo will perform live from Studio A just after 3pm today on “The Big Generator aka Starship Trooper” with host DJ Doug-O.

The Boston Herald says “Evolfo does pop, punk, funk, ska, salsa and Eastern European rhythm— sometimes in the same song.” They describe their own sound “as residing somewhere between Gogol Bordello and Dr. John, with a slew of other more obscure worldly influences.”

Later tonight, the group will perform at SOhO Restaurant and Nightclub (upstairs at 1221 State Street) with local Santa Barbara band Freakin’ on Speakers. Showtime for this all-ages concert is 830pm.

“The Big Generator aka Starship Trooper” airs on KCSB’s Summer Schedule each Tuesday from 3-5pm.
